Little League Softball and Baseball is played in approximately 6,500 communities across more than 80 countries around the world, but regardless of where they are played, each of them share the same core mission. Little League believes in the power of youth softball and baseball to teach life lessons that build stronger individuals and communities.

Athlete Causes

To support the development of athletes as civic leaders, Athletes Unlimited has launched our Athlete Causes program in partnership with Give Lively and the Give Lively Foundation. This program enables each of our athletes to play for the organization and cause of their choice during the season. At the end of the season, the Give Lively Foundation will make a grant equal to 50% of the athlete’s end-of-season bonus to their non-profit.

 

Organizations selected by the athletes this season address issues ranging from racial justice to the environment, mental health and expanding access to youth sports. Our athletes also have the opportunity to raise additional funds as well as visibility for their organizations through promotion on their social media channels and Give Lively’s’ amazing fundraising tools. 

To learn more about what organizations our athletes are playing for and how to participate, check out this article.

Softball athlete, Kayla Wedl explained why she enjoys the Athlete Causes program: “I love the athlete causes program because it allows us athletes to support and advocate for an organization that holds a special place in our hearts. It allows us to bring attention to causes that some people may not know about and tell the story behind our cause.”

We are excited to showcase these deeply meaningful partnerships during our game on Sunday, September 12 at 4:00 p.m. ET on YouTube and 7:00 p.m. on Fox Sports (FS2). Want to support our athletes and their causes? Tickets are also available for this game and can be purchased here.
